Packers | Backup QB battle up in the air

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:28:14 -0700

Green Bay Packers QBs Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn are in a heated battle in training camp to be the backup to QB Aaron Rodgers this year. "I think it's up in the air right now," quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt said. "It's in a competition. That's healthy for everybody." Tolzien outplayed Flynn in the team's first preseason game over the weekend. Flynn has the advantage due to his knowledge of the system, but Tolzien has had a year to learn it and has improved considerably.

Tolzien worked in the offseason to keep his elbow tighter to the left side of his body, according to Van Pelt. Tolzien has followed Rodgers in 11-on-11 drills in practice this week, but Van Pelt said it's unrelated to the quarterbacks' performances in the preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Tolzien has more upside than Flynn, but the familiarity with the offense likely continues to give Flynn the slight edge. However, neither QB should make much noise in the regular season unless Rodgers suffers another serious injury and is forced to miss time.

Packers | Matt Flynn takes nearly all the snaps in practice

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 11:12:35 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took nearly all the snaps in practice Thursday, Dec. 19, while backup QB Scott Tolzien took a handful of snaps. QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) did not take any snaps in the portion of practice open to the media.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Flynn will once again get the start in the team's Week 16 game based on how practice is playing out for the Packers this week.

We've looked at all three of them that have potential to be able to play in this game."

Packers | Matt Flynn takes first-team reps

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 12:53:41 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took the "starter reps" in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Mike McCarthy has yet to name Flynn the starter in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions. QB Scott Tolzien was pulled in Week 12 in the third quarter against the Minnesota Vikings. "I'm very comfortable," said Flynn, who was the Packers' backup from 2008-2011. "I feel good with the playbook. I feel good with the game plan. I feel ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: Flynn is most comfortable in this offense. The matchup against Detroit isn't a bad one if you need another QB in leagues that start two quarterbacks.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers likely to miss Week 13

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:35:31 -0800

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) likely will not play in the team's Week 13 game. McCarthy said either QB Matt Flynn or QB Scott Tolzien likely will start the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears likely Rodgers is at least a week away from returning to the field. It is not known if Flynn or Tolzien will start, but only desperate owners should consider starting either one this week.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers throwing

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 13:25:50 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is throwing without any pain in his collarbone, and he was seen tossing the ball around before the team's Week 11 game. He isn't experiencing pain while running either, but has yet to take any snaps. "I think the biggest issue is not the pain at this point," Rodgers said. "It is the risk of taking a shot like that and what it would do if (the collarbone) displaced. Obviously, I'd be out for the season and worried about any type of complications going forward." QB Scott Tolzien has already been named the starter in Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rodgers is progressing, but he still has a ways to go. There's a chance he could return for the team's Thanksgiving game next week, depending on how he gets through practices leading up to that contest. Continue to be patient.

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 14:48:36 -0800

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday, Nov. 10, that QB Scott Tolzien will make the start against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Tolzien might be worth using in deeper fantasy formats which require two starting signal callers, but in standard formats he isn't worth the roster spot.

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:34:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Colt McCoy, Scott Tolzien, Seneca Wallace and B.J. Daniels are not guaranteed a roster spot at this point.

Tolzien could be a practice squad candidate because he has eligibility left.

49ers | Scott Tolzien trying to hang on

Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:03:03 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Scott Tolzien is in the incumbent on the roster, but he is expected to have quite a fight on his hands during training camp and the preseason for the No. 3 quarterback battle with QB B.J. Daniels. The two are likely to split second-half duties during the preseason, and whoever can move the offseason during games is likely to win the depth chart battle.

Wed, 17 Jul 2013 12:29:27 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB B.J. Daniels could have an edge over QB Scott Tolzien for the No. 3 quarterback job entering training camp because of his ability to play different positions as well as on special teams. Daniels could be active on game days if he makes the team and be used in different ways.

49ers | Scott Tolzien in mix for backup QB duties

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 00:51:23 -0800

With the departure of QB Alex Smith, San Francisco 49ers backup QB Scott Tolzien will be in the mix for the No. 2 quarterback duties behind starter Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers have spoken highly of Tolzien's work ethic and intelligence. The offense would have to change if he were ever under center, as he is known as a pocket passer. The 49ers may also make a play for QB Josh X. Johnson (Browns) and may opt to use one of their 15 NFL Draft choices on a backup quarterback.
